Sold STC £595,000
Cool, clean and incredibly impressive, yet cosy enough to still feel like home - truly a collection of homes for all seasons.
Whittington Apartments is a landmark Highgate Hill development of newly built homes where space, light and luxury combine to create a unique collection of apartments.
Highgate and The Hill - London's "Green Lung "- The words are those of the world-famous violinist and humanist Yehudi Menuhin's and he used them as a slogan to prevent the overdevelopment of Witanhurst's wooded acres encroaching on Hampstead Heath back in the 1980s - itself a bit of history which sums up living in Highgate. It reminds us that Highgate Hill is within easy reach of the centre of town by tube and bus but, with Hampstead Heath, Waterlow Park and its necklace of smaller parks, the healthy, windswept hill on which it stands is really the first area of green space you come to North outside London. The area has a distinct character which has historically attracted artists from contemporary musicians to Dickens and Betjeman, as well as a whole host of other people who now, as in previous centuries, make it a socially and culturally interesting place to be without the pretence of some other areas, and one whose character they want to preserve and enjoy. It is perfectly positioned for easily accessing everything useful including and transport connections by bus or tube at Archway.
For culture and leisure pursuits, Highgate Hill and the Village are hard to beat. We have Upstairs at the Gatehouse, a consistently award-winning theatre with possibly the finest off-West End programme anywhere in London; not to mention Highgate's own Literary and Scientific Institution, the Highgate Society (Yehudi was its Patron), world-famous Highgate Cemetery, Jackson's Lane, a clutch of cinemas, nearby Alexandra Palace, gastro-pubs, places of worship to suit almost everyone, good shops on site or within easy reach.
And if you need exercise, the area is well-provided with sports facilities, pools, fitness gyms. Pilates centres, cricket and rugby clubs, or just plain, good jogging routes.
